About the South Beyond 6000

Members of the Carolina Mountain Club and the Tennessee Eastman Hiking and Canoeing Club assembled a list of 40 peaks in the Southern Appalachians that rise 6000 feet or more above sea level. With this list they created the South Beyond 6000 program.

More information on the South Beyond 6000 program can be found on the Carolina Mountain Club’s Web site.

  1. […] I’ve added a page that lists all 40 peaks of the South Beyond 6000. I’ve already decided I want to try to tackle all 40. It would be cool to get them all done in one year, but I’m not foolish enough to set that as a goal. […]

  2. […] This morning, I found another WordPress blog via Scobleizer (via RSS, of course). Cutter sounds like an interesting dude. I wish him well in his quest to tackle the 40 peaks in the Southeast over 6000 feet. That’s the whole reason I was drawn to his site. I didn’t even know there were 40 such peaks. I figured Mt. Washington was the king among few peers. Even Katahdin is well below 6000 feet. […]

  3. […] I was able to knock off another peak from the South Beyond 6000 list with little effort. I hiked to Mt. Kephart in the Smokies, taking an easy route that mostly on the AT. […]

  4. […] On December 30, I intended to hit two South Beyond 6000 peaks in one day, Clingman’s Dome and Mt. Collins in the Smokies. Unfortunately, Newfound Gap Road was closed because of ice. […]

  5. […] After a couple of missed chances, I finally was able to get up to Newfound Gap and hike the AT from there to Clingman’s Dome. That allowed me to bag two of the South Beyond 6000 peaks in one trip. The trail passes right over Mt. Collins on the way to Clingman’s Dome. […]
